Human Traces Found to Be Oldest in N. America – washingtonpost.com

Using radiocarbon dating and DNA analysis, an international team concluded that fossilized feces found five feet below the surface of an arid cave are significantly older than any previous human remains unearthed in the Americas.

If confirmed, this result is pretty cool. I’m not sure it’s revolutionary by any means, but still neat and important. And who knew people left so much DNA in their crap?
